This little cafe on top of the hill, overlooking the sea, is amazing - if you can get a seat! It is very popular for coffees, teas, lunches but worth a visit.

Popped in for lunch on our way to Weymouth. The food was lovely and the staff were friendly. This is a busy little cafe. Lots of cyclists, bikers and people taking a walk on the coastal path. Will be back next year.

A small cafe offering a wide ranging and interesting menu. The view from the cafe is superb overlooking Weymouth Bay. Often there are not vacant tables inside but there are plenty of outside tables (weather permitting).

We went for coffee and cake and were extremely disappointed. The Victoria sandwich was hard and dry. The coffee cake was better but still not great. It is unusual for us to leave cake on the plate, but we did here.

This little gem, situated atop a hill is open pretty much all year and serves lovely sandwiches, tea, coffee etc. Benches outside give the opportunity to enjoy the fantastic views (see photos).

While serving up cakes coffee and Dorset tea most of the time, the Lookout Cafe also serves tasty local fish and chips, fresh crab sandwiches, and salads of all types. Well worth eating there just for the view over Weymouth and Portland.
